COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BBC Nut Brown Ale has a diverse grain bill which lends this traditional English ale a variety of flavors that coalesce into a remarkably smooth and pleasant drink. Additions of various pale, caramel and dark malts create a smooth, sweet malt profile with hints of roasted nuttiness. Multiple additions of English hops round out the flavors and give this classic beer a true flavor of the Old World.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark amber with a small whitish head. Aroma is rich malt, chocolate, some nuts. Flavor backs off of the malt, but there’s still quite a lot of caramel. The chocolate is creamy, like hot cocoa or milk chocolate. Some hazelnuts. Mouth feel is creamy. Rich, tasty beer. My first exposure to a Bluegrass -- I’d try another.

jhp40219 (374) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 11, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2013 Pours a soda brown with a amber hue. Very little head even with an aggressive pour, and head completely disappeared within moments leaving no lacing whatsoever. Faint aroma of roasty hazelnut, malt, caramel and toffee. Very nice, but far too faint. Taste is very nutty up front. Not just hazelnut either, but a nice combo of several different nuts. Roasty malts, caramel and toffee come through very well, especially in the aftertaste. Palate is thin with a watery texture. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Overall a decent beer, but the palate and faint aroma really hurt it.

Rustyham (1800) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Smells like sweet caramel and black coffee, flavor is a great chewy maltiness with a dry nuttiness. Probably the most potent nut brown i have ever had. Extremely drinkable and extremely refreshing. Fantastic. Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Nashville.

phaleslu (7546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2010
Draft sample at the St. Matthews brewery. Pours a clear brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of nuts, brown sugar, toasted malts, caramel, and very faint hops. The flavor is sweet and toasty, with malts, nuts, caramel, brown sugar, and cardboard. Light-medium bodied, with average carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Very plain, unexciting nut brown ale.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Bottle thanks to beerbill. Pours with a hazy brown body and a tan head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, light sherry and vinous notes. A bit of chocolate covered raisins as well. Flavor is kind of bland. Some caramel, some raisin and vinous notes. A touch of chocolate, but it is pretty watery. Medium to light bubbles, watery mouthfeel.

Pours a rich brown with a thin foamy tan head. Aroma of roast malt, mild nut and biscuit. Mild nutty and roast malt taste. Easy drinking, nothing phenomenal but good still. Medium light body with high carbonation.
